Our Church Staff

dianne Director of Ministries Dianne Lewis
 

 

I’m Dianne with two “n’s” Lewis, and I’m the director of ministries here at Fowler Pres. I’ve been at this church pretty much since forever, and I’ve been working at the church since 96’.

I was actually born in the building next door to the church at what was at the time Fowler hospital. I’m a lifer here in Fowler. It has truly been a wonderful community for my family and me through the years. 

I graduated from Fresno State University with a Bachelors in science in recreation administration. I was a travel agent for 20 years. I’m married with two sons and two grandchildren.

A few of my favorite things are: hiking, photography, biking, kayaking, and golfing.

andrea Organist Andrea Belau

 

I’m Andrea Belau, and I’m the organist and pianist at Fowler Pres. I have a bachelor’s degree from Fresno State in fine arts and music. I also studied with Enabronstein—the concert pianist—and Laurell Huber—professor of organ–at Fresno Pacific University.

I’ve been married to Larry for 51 years, and we have 3 grown children. I’m active in the San Joaquin valley chapter of the American guild of organists.

A few of my favorite things are: corresponding with grandchildren, performing concerts with my husband, and sewing and gardening.

 

I’m Carol Downs, and I’m the secretary here at Fowler Pres. I’ve had the joy of serving in this church for almost 14 years, and I’ve been attending since the 1980’s. 

I’m also one of the deacons here at the church because I love caring for others. I also enjoy being a part of the choir. I have also served as a Young Life Leader.
 
Before becoming the secretary here, I used to teach porcelain doll classes for 16 years. I also was the office manager in a dentist’s office for 12 years.
 
Outside of family, my interests are art and prayer.

Sexton Betty Rose

 

 

I’m Betty Rose, and I’m the Sexton here at Fowler Pres. My husband Ted and I have been attending the church since 2000. I have two daughters, three grand kids, and four great grand kids.

A few of my favorite things are: quilting, entertaining guests, gardening, and just spending time with my humorous husband.

It is with joy and gratitude that I serve as pastor to our wonderful congregation. We are also so blessed to have a gifted and dedicated staff! I love coming to work everyday as we work together as a team to further the ministries of our church.
 
A bit about me: born in San Francisco, and raised an hour north in beautiful Sonoma County. I graduated from Sonoma State University with a degree in History, and then headed to Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA to get my masters in divinity (M.Div).
 
I’m ordained to Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and I have served three previous churches in Southern California and northern California. I absolutely love living here in the Fowler community.
 
My purpose in life is to help others ever-increase their joy in Jesus.
 
A few of my favorite things are: my family, baseball (go Giants!), Seinfeld, cathedrals, travel (44 countries and counting!), U2, Rich Mullins, movies, and reading C.S. Lewis, John Piper, and William Lane Craig.

Sarah Feaver grew up in a small town in Ohio. She attended college at The Ohio State University and was very involved with the mission of Young Life. The Lord called her to the ministry of Young Life which has taken her across the United States. She has worked for Young Life in Oregon, Arizona, and now here in California. Sarah has a heart for High School and College Students – to help them grow in their relationship with Christ.   
 
In her free time Sarah loves going to the mountains with her husband, Travis, and their three dogs Charlie, Tucker, and Finn. She enjoys baking, watching Chip and Joanna Gaines on HGTV,  and watching The Ohio State Buckeyes football and basketball teams. And lastly she loves a good cup of coffee (Skinny Carmel Macchiato).  
 
Travis is helping Sarah lead the College Ministry at Fowler Presbyterian Church. He attended college at Fresno Pacific University. He is the local Area Director for Young Life. Travis loves being outdoors, being with their dogs, helping train service dogs, and loves the San Francisco Giants. He also loves coffee (maybe even more than Sarah does! – Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte).
Our High School staff consists of Nathan Dondlinger and Ryan Stockwell
Our Junior High Director is Steven Lewis
